2017 Bentley Continental GT vs. Its Competition

2017 Bentley Continental GT Speed Black Edition
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

Compared to more mass-market luxury brands, Bentley competes in a completely different stratosphere, where fine leathers, exotic woods and obscene power are all standard features in every model.

The most likely vehicle to show up alongside the Continental GT in a parking-lot duel is the Mercedes-Benz S-Class; as a two-door coupe, it's undeniably attractive, and runs strong with every version, from base V-8 to twin-turbo AMG trim.

The Aston Martin D11 is another infinitely handsome and terribly powerful car that produces all the noises that lead to lust.

If you're looking for all-wheel-drive and a little more seating, there's the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso, with its very cool, very polarizing design–but hey, it's a Ferrari.

The Maserati GranTurismo doesn't cost as much and may even offer a little less prestige, but its sonorous Italian V-8 and exotic styling earn a slightly younger audience.
